Graduation/Senior Info


Senior Prom

The Senior Prom will be held at the Science Museum private patio, Boston, from 7-11PM. Only seniors in good standing may attend the senior prom. CRLS rules and regulations, as described in the student handbook, are in effect at the senior prom. Please check with your Dean of Students regarding “good standing” status.

Library Books
The due date for all library books for all seniors is Friday, May 27th. If you are unsure what books you may have checked out, you can visit us in the library and ask a librarian at any time the library is open.

Senior Materials Collection & Final Plan Forms

Seniors will need to return all borrowed materials including textbooks, library books, athletic uniforms & equipment prior to commencement. Additionally, in order to receive their cap and gown they will need to complete their “Senior Final Plans Form” and submit it to their guidance counselor.

Seniors do not need to return their Chromebooks. ICTS will disconnect them from the CPS network after graduation. Students who do not want to keep their Chromebook can return it when they pick up their cap and gown so that it can support other students and/or be properly recycled.

NHS Members
NHS cowls will be distributed to members with their cap and gowns.
